is too early. After black takes the left side white his group still remains weak.

Black should play the lower side. It is more urgent.


To understand white his disadvantage, let's look at the following diagram.



Here black chooses to play the left side. Now, white must immediatly play at the top to solidify his position. However, if black plays the top side first (as in the main diagram), then to keep the game even white must immediatly play the left side. If not, then he ends up giving away 2 times, which is the case in the main diagram. It is too soft.
